It was our first time in Coron & we booked through their website. It was misleading. The location is not in the main Island of Coron, so it was already a huge disadvantage. One has to take their boat & pay for the fare. To take off, the boat has to wait for other passengers. So for another group tour, we got late.
The price of the room was expensive for what was offered. It was just bed, toilet, shower & shelves (no cabinet). For some reason it was not regularly cleaned. The toilet & shower, were even for Philippine Standard, so minimal. The ceiling light got broken on the first night, and even if we mentioned it, it wasn't changed.
The Administration also lacks organization. You mention something important to one of the heads, it doesn't reach the others. We have to discuss the same problem over and over again to four different people in Tagalog and in English everyday just to clarify something.
We finally decided to check-in another hotel in the middle of the City, located in a quiet area (Eco Lodge) to get the worth of our money.
